Over the last 30 years, PJSA has developed strong expertise in planning work and representation.


We specialise in Green Belt and rural development, and have a good rapport with Local Planning Authorities. Applications are usually accompanied by Design and Access Statements, and we act for other Planning Consultants to provide Design and Access Statements.

We have extensive knowledge and experience of Agricultural and Rural planning work, which is to a great extent, unique.

See our Design and Building Consultancy services as well.


For those clients who have tracts of land in the Green Belt, or in the open countryside, there is always a need for forward planning. We ensure that your land is placed in the right position and has the right representations, to maximise its chances for the future. This is highly technical work, it is long term, and it can be expensive. We also advise on Option Agreements with developers.

It is important to make sure your land is not overlooked when considering plans over the next 20 years.
